COVID-19: Delta Offers Free Flights to Medical Volunteers
Delta is supporting medical professionals on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis by offering free flights to certain regions of the U.S. that have been significantly impacted.
Eligible medical volunteers will be able to book round-trip Delta flights free of charge to Georgia, Louisiana and Michigan, where they will work in coordination with the state and local government offices to be deployed to hospitals in areas hardest hit by the virus.
Delta will also look at the possibility of expanding this program to other regions in need, including California, New York, and Washington.
Medical volunteers interested in this program should contact the state offices below to determine their eligibility based on each state’s specific needs.
Eligibility and volunteer program details are being managed by the states and will be communicated to participants once approved by the states.
Once eligible candidates are identified, Delta will work with the state and local government offices to make flight reservations. The flights will be offered during the month of April to start and can be booked up to three days in advance of travel.
